, wait. hold your horses. do not take action because kissinger is going to move on with provided doctors. when the telegram was sent from the state department to the embassy during yom kippur, the egyptian and syrian armies were already on their way to destroy the jewish state. that is an example of a mistake because the leader at the time, she was afraid to take a preemptive attack. she was afraid to hold the reserve because she said i don't know what will be the reaction in washington. and dr. kissinger was very strong. nixon was going down, he was going up and she was afraid from his reaction. because of her approach, we almost lost the world. that is why today we do with the issue of iran, we have to take the decision which is good for israel. maybe it will not be popular in the u.n. for sure. everything you say about israel and the standard of the one sponsored by u.s. money of some event maybe one day will be a committee to look at the decision and the u.n. but also it will not be popular in the u.s. only today, secretary clinton a few hours ago said we should not put any red light

from the united nations on this presidential statement condemning the actions of north korea can set the stage for tougher actions in the future if china -- if north korea were to launch another missile. that missile has been launched. we now think it's time for tougher actions since her engaging diplomatically with china and other members of the u.n. security council on tougher resolutions and possibly sanctions against north korea. >> make any progress quick >> if you type to the state department to figure out what's going on. we've conveyed very frankly, candidly to the chinese in both washington d.c. and beijing in my case. >> in beijing, what is the view that you can tell of kim jong-un about what power he has, who he is, what its capabilities are to stay in north korea? >> the chinese believe we need to give north korea a chance in and develop economically. china would like all the parties that are part of the six party talks to get back to the table and to see if we can't encourage better behavior from north korea as opposed to imposing sanctions now and trying to coerce north
, and of course we need to strengthen our gun laws so i hope by legislative action we'll convene such a commission. mr. president, i want to make clear, i am not offering this idea as a substitute for any action that we can take now. any action that the president can take now, for instance, with regard to the existing laws that are aimed at preventing people who shouldn't have guns from having them. keeping guns that are military and not part of hunt organize sports shooting, off the market. anything the president can -- anything the president can do anything congress can accommodate i support a restoration of the assault ban today. these are weapons developed by our military onlily north by private industry, for hunting or sports shooting purposes. they shouldn't be sold. we've got the background checks and the brady bill. if you attempt to buy a gun from a licensed federal firearms dealer, why shouldn't that exist for people who buy a gun at a gun show? where, incidentally, terrorists we know have bought guns. so anything we can do quickly, we ought to do, but i also think that a commission will

the international community. joining us from beijing with re action from china, universally condemned. >> reporter: hello, andrea. well, a short while ago we heard from north korea that this new satellite has started broadcasting revolutionary songs, the songs of kim il-song and mission control there was great excitement at this. the rest of the world, is, of course, somewhat less enthralled and even china, the ally and economic partner of pyongyang had some pretty blunt language today. now, this isn't the first time that china has been critical of north korea, but they rarely react in such blunt terms. you will recall that only a short while ago they were describing the relationship with north korea as being like lips and teeth, well, that's really no longer the case. the question now, of course, is what china will do about it. they were pretty clear today they were not about to start supporting u.n. sanctions against the north, but we have a new leadership here, and there are signs he may be less indulgent of north korea, less indulgent of a nation which officials here privately have likened to

the actions that have been fighting for over years. there are many that have been proved to be trusted with people. i don't thought how much this administration tried the good people. when you talk to officials. how do i know who's good and who's bad? if they are trying to find your man now, it is too late already. but the problem in a year -- [inaudible] this is my last point. i personally know a couple people who have been living in the u.s. for 20, 30 years, financing and fighting themselves. at least they could be easy to find. they always complain from the administration. >> said the u.s. government provide more support into the insurgency? in the form -- >> heavy army. >> recommendations for the administration. it's quite urgent. so they either step in and fill in the void or they will jeopardize u.s. national security interests in syria -- [inaudible] syria is one of the alleys of the united states. in terms of how to do that, first they need to empower those independent counsel. so the u.s. send aid relief to the contrary. but all of that goes to organizations such as the u.n.

. president obama has vowed to take action against gun violence in the united states following the shooting rampage that left 27 people dead, including 20 young children, in newtown, connecticut. all of the children are aged 6 and 7. the gunman, 20-year-old adam lanza, shot his mother dead at their home before driving to the sandy hook elementary school and forcing his way inside. armed with high-powered rifle, two handguns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, lanza shot up to first grade classrooms before taking his own life as police arrived at the scene. lanza still had hundreds of additional rounds of ammo and another weapon in his car, suggesting he would carry out more shootings had the police not closed again. 12 of the victims were girls, eight were boys. all six of the adult victims were women. the school victims all appeared to have suffered multiple gunshot wounds. connecticut's chief medical examiner, dr. wayne carver, called the crime scene the worst he had ever witnessed. >> i have been at this for a third of a century, and my sensibilities may not be the average man, but thi

of what they believe is virtue. it is a totalitarian society because it dictates your scope of action in life. it dictates fundamental moral choices about who to marry and whatever, all kinds of stuff. that's another way in which we need to understand and that also leads to some deeper appreciation of how you go about tackling this. very briefly, we should distinguish the term liberalism from democracy. democracy is simply a process. you had an election. he took a bow for their own enslavement and often do. people forget this. they think world for freedom. i'm sorry, but there's a constituency that is per submission. this is a site goes fact of life that is not fully appreciated. in the west. so how do you go about it? to distinguish between democracy and liberalism and you try as best you can to promote the spirit of liberalism, even if it is procedurally at the expense of the brotherhood. >> your response to that? >> i'm listening to this discussion which i enjoy thoroughly, but my mind as to how we do this. and i would throw home one point that i'm trying to stress here that i may

we take action we could take a fiscal or economic crisis that forces the cuts to the military priorities, steep and arbitrary cuts that are more coherent or prioritized. the question is can we and how do we achieve savings that can improve our fiscal outlook while meeting our national security needs. to quote at arnall mullen again, he said the pentagon budget was basically doubled in the last decade and in doubling the ability to prioritize to make the decisions to deutsch analyses to make trades. we also need a review of the defense strategy that makes sure that we are preparing for the threats and risks of the 21st century, not those of the past. the efforts on the longest lines to help advance the best ideas for improving our defense strategy. earlier this year, we've funded the project by the simpson center that brought together 15 defense experts to examine our strategic defense priorities in some detail and how they should be reformed. today we announce a new coalition for the fiscal and national security. the coalition chaired by admiral mullen includes national's seni

at the earliest, that would be on friday. but, you know, the action really is now going to begin in the senate. there isn't that much of a rush for the house to come back. and when i say action, even that is a question mark. whether there will be action. i was talking to a democratic source who said right now what they had to figure out, victor, is whether or not harry reid working with the white house on this can get enough votes from republicans to cross party lines for even a scaled back measure, which the president laid out in general on friday, would just be to keep americans' taxes where they are for those making $250,000 or less. and to do a couple of other things, unemployment benefits, maybe, maybe extend the estate tax cut, which is -- which is also going to run out, but, again, they're not even -- the senator won't even consider doing this, i'm told, unless he's sure they'll get through the senate and the house because politically they don't think there is any reason for congress to take votes that are just going to fail. also, they that i it will be bad for the markets, even worse
